The use of a steam flowmeter may be used to directly measure the steam usage of an operational item of plant. This may be used to monitor the results of energy saving schemes and to compare the efficiency of one item of plant with another. The steam can then be costed as a raw material at any stage of the production process, so that the cost of individual product lines may be determined.
It is only in comparatively rare cases that a meter cannot measure steam flow. Care should be taken, however, to ensure that the prevailing steam pressure is considered and that no other calibration factor has been overlooked.
Steam flowmetering is discussed in detail in Block 4.
